MEDFORD, Ore. — The City of Medford said on Wednesday that had it had delivered checks totaling $35,000 to several community organizations providing assistance during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The City gave $10,000 to Access, $5,000 to the Bear Creek Greenway COVID-19 Response, $5,000 to St. Vincent de Paul of Medford, and $5,000 to Mercy's Gate Rogue Valley. Those funds will be put toward providing food to members of the community in need.

In addition, Medford gave $10,000 to Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Southern Oregon for people and businesses facing major financial impacts from coronavirus.

"These funds were made available by City Council last Thursday as they approved the use of $100,000 in marijuana tax revenue to help support local organizations who are serving our community during this unprecedented time," the City said. "Funding priorities include food, sheltering in place, and the health and safety of our residents."

Medford said it will be looking for other ways to use the remaining $65,000 to address other urgent needs in the area.

For those looking to chip in or looking for a little extra help, Medford has set up a website with resources for community support.
